Feels like we are on vacation in our own backyard...

If you are looking for the best outdoor wood-fired pizza oven for your backyard, catering, or a food truck, this is the perfect large pizza oven We personally use this wood-fired oven and LOVE IT!

The Maximus Prime ARENA is the upgraded style that has a slate front look rather than the traditional brick look.

Maximus Prime pizza oven air flow through chimney

Don't be fooled by the chimney at the back of the oven.  The Prime Arena Stainless Steel Wood-Fired Oven has an aluminum dome with a stainless steel 316 dropped ceiling inside the oven.  This ceiling directs the fire/heat from the back of the oven to the front of the oven and then up through a ceiling opening that goes back to the chimney. 

This design sends the heat over your food which allows for convection cooking and better heat retention as you can see in the video below!


Why Choose a Stainless Steel Pizza Oven?

Unlike a brick oven, a stainless steel pizza oven heats up in 30-45 minutes so you can fire it up after work and be ready for cooking before you finish your first glass of wine.   Handmade in Portugal, this oven produces superb wood-fired pizzas as well as any other dish you can imagine!  The larger cooking floor fits up to 5-6 pizza pies at a time and they will cook to perfection in less than 2 minutes.

For a limited time, when you buy the Prime Portable Pizza Oven, get a FREE 12" Metal Turning Peel and Clay Roasting Pan (14.5″ x 10″ x 3″) - great for dishes such as chicken, beef, fish, veggies, bread and so much more!

We've found that our Maximus Prime Pizza Oven (old style above) creates a family cooking atmosphere because, unlike a grill that involves one person doing all the cooking, this large pizza oven lets all family members get involved from firing up the oven to food preparation to cooking delicious meals.

Prime Oven Videos 

Breakfast Casserole Cooking in Prime Pizza Oven

We don't like wasting good heat in our wood-burning ovens so after the pizzas are cooked, we often throw in a good breakfast casserole in preparation for the following morning!  Here's a video of a scrumptious southwestern breakfast casserole complete with eggs, cheese, and salsa! Check out the large cooking space!

 

Here's another video showing a couple of pizzas cooking in the Maximus Prime oven.

Good product overall, and good customer service.

My shipment took nearly 2 months to arrive, and upon arrival, was found to have some significant structural damage (think: dents, cracked bricks, torn insulation blanket). Patio and Pizza was kind enough to provide me with a cover and replacement bricks, along with some instructions for how to repair the dents. Aside from the shipping issues, the product works great overall and I've really enjoyed learning how to build and maintain the fire, and cook some great food!

Your setup looks great Jordan! Thank you so much for this honest review! We've faced many challenges through this unprecedented time; shipping delays being the largest. We truly appreciate your kindness and understanding through the entire process. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or need any help along your pizza making journey! We look forward to helping you with any of your pizza oven needs!

Excellent Customer Service

I purchased my oven in the tail end of the pandemic, there was nothing but delays all around and beyond P&P control which lead to even more delays in furfilling my order, your customer service department was nothing but extraordinary. They held my hand, answered my emails, and followed up day after day until the very end. I even received a phone call from Michelle after I finished setting up my oven to make sure everything was ok and I was happy.

Wow! Thank you SO much for this wonderful review John! Working with you has been a delight! We truly thank you over and over again for being so understanding and patient through this process! We have had to face many hurtles along the way, and were eager and willing to clear them to the best of our abilities! We are more than happy to ALWAYS help our customers through every process, whether it is the beginning of the process, or the end. We look forward to serving you for all your Pizza and Patio needs!
